Woven fabrics are more or less what most people picture when they think of a typical loom. At their most basic, woven fabrics are made by interlacing two sets of yarns and creating sort of a grid or checkered pattern. The yarns are straight, meet each other at right angles, and run in two directions. They a flat sheet of fabric that only stretches along one direction. Woven fabrics are most often used for non-apparel textiles like bedsheets, curtains, and towels, or garments like dress pants, dress shirts, and jeans.
